View Full Version : Who wanted CD's?

02-08-03, 11:58
I have:

I think one of the herbalists wanted them too.

Anyone else? - CD or CD's are a "best of" Medtech kind of collection - generally the more fact filled articals. It also contains a bunch of manuals from relief organizations, the military, etc and some papers. Most are in pdf or word format.

If you work in the medical field tell me and at what level. There may be some additional reference material and software.

I need your addresses. (PM me - don't post!)

also please tell me if your CD player can read 700MB CD's or if they max out at 650MB's. Haven't tried it yet, but I may be able to compress this down abit.

On cost:
some of these documents have distribution restrictions that I want to honor. Specifically, they can be distributed on a non-profit basis freely but commercial distribution is forbiden. As such, I would like to ask for a donation for shipping and handling. I figure out of pocket expenses will be arround $2 - $3.50 per set, so think a donation of $4-$5 would be appropriate. If you can't afford that, send what you can or nothing. If you want to send a bit more, that's fine, just not too much. It would help make up for people that can't afford it. I will send a SASE with the CD's (tell me if you can't afford it upfront and I'll save the SASE) please send eithor cash or a personal check. You MAY also be able to send funds directly to my account with RR through any means of payment he accepts, in care of my account and e-mail both of us (cc) informing us of this fact. I have not passed that by RR yet, so it might not fly...

Interest at pressent seems low volume. As such, I feel comfortable handling it. If it picks up, there will be a new offering on the MedTech retail site - and you guys had BETTER order some of RR's other stuff at the same time!

Depending on how it goes, and my not getting stiffed too badly, I might start a pool of extra funds to do periodic mailings of stuff that's in an aquard(sp?) format or too big for the board. Let me know how interested people are in this. You can get a huge amount of information on a CD so updates would not be that frequent. For that matter, please indicate if your address is stable or not - if you are interested in updates.

sorry it's taken so long to get to this,

Since I have a PayPal account I can certainly help out that way. Man, he wants me to keep books though. Sheesh! There's a reason I didn't follow dad into accounting.

Seriously, if you want to set up a Tangent's Band-Aid Buy fund we can do that.

Meantime if I ever get back with the guy who's burning CD's for me I'll have some also.


02-08-03, 14:20
RR - thanks for playing "bank" for me.

what CD's - how many? - I have a burner.... PM me...


02-08-03, 14:56
I'll take 2.

02-08-03, 19:58
I'll take one from you... think I was the herbalist :D

02-09-03, 06:59
I want one. I mail you with detalis. Payment from other contries?

SwedeGlocker, if you have a PayPal account you can transfer funds that way. It would be the least expensive way.


02-09-03, 14:20
SG - if you can do PayPal to RR that would be fine. If not, don't worry about it. You've been helping me abit lately anyway.

Ditto for Craig, if he wants a set.


ps: want to keep the free sets to a mimimum, but overseas banking transactions are a pain. So I'm making that offer for a couple of people that are overseas. If you can afford a set, please pay the S&H for it.

02-10-03, 01:09
OK people, several of you have e-mailed me but only one has provided an address. You pay AFTER you get the CD's - it's the honor system. If you are in the USA you will get a SASE to send a few $ back in unless you've told me your sending PayPal to RR or can't afford it.

What I need from you:
My address is:

Payment: SASE/PayPal/I'm Poor - send me a free set

I can read CD's that are a max of: 650MB(old CD players)/700MB(CD players made in the last couple of years)

please indicate if you are interested in updates

do you have a stable mailing address for updates?



02-11-03, 20:26
RR, if it's me...send 'em my way. I can burn more for you if you want. I have plenty of CD's & jewel cases. Let me know.

02-12-03, 09:08
I'll take a copy as well - and I'd be happy to help burn a few - gotta bunch of blanks CD-Rs hanging around.


02-13-03, 18:32
I believe I have about 10 requests for CD sets and only 3 addresses to send them to. Please PM your mailing info, folks!



OK - I'm off. motivated me to check

have requests and addresses from:
nurse ratchet

I have requests and NEED addresses for:
swede glocker

common, u slackers! - send those addies in!

I presume RR wants a set and have his address.

Yes I do. :-)

Check your PM, please.


02-13-03, 19:12
what PM?


02-14-03, 12:42
I'll take one tangent, check your PM.

02-25-03, 10:39
Hi, My first post here after lurking for a while. Mostly been waiting for updates on RR's novel to be posted.

I would like a copy of the CD.

people have been asking what's on the CD's.

Disk 1 is the Medtech disk, somewhat current contents follows.
Disk 2 is OPMED - the same as the navy website that is a medical reference system.
additional CD's may be added depending on your level of training.

Contents of Disk 1 follow:

several of you have asked about payment. it's covered in the first post. I'm not trying to make anything off this. You will get a SASE, or can do PayPal via RR. Asking $3-5 to cover expenses. that is: mailers, CD-R's, stamps and SASE's.

These CD's are being shipped "raw" - if you get them from me. That is, they do not have a case. I'm not sure if flotsam's packaging will differ.

hey tangent, it's GATOR. Do you still have a set of CD's available. If so, I'll take a set. Lemme know and I'll PM ya. Thanks/

03-21-03, 00:13
still working on them - really behind.

PM me.

Hey tangent,

send me set to burn & i'll get working on some for you.

duplication is only part of the problem. some I can duplicate now.

another part is reviewing everything, testing the installs, and what's hanging me up most is that I have room and I also have a couple of file folders full of great material that I'd like to get scanned in and added to the collection. costs of sending out one disk vs sending out several are very close. costs of sending out one disk twice are a lot more.

right now my pdf scans are comming out way to big.

maybe I should just send what I have and we'll do an update whenever. You guys are going to be overwealmed, anyway.

We just hit spring break - good timing. give me a couple of days and we should have something.

sorry for taking so long.

(also got a bit distracted w/ what all is going on in the world...)


ps: I've got research enough for a preliminary paper on acoustic Dx of Fx - want to kick that out soon too.
